city. >>> mitt romney heading into the illinois presidential primary on the heels of a weekend win on the isle of enchantment, puerto rico. according to the associated press, the former massachusetts governor won the u.s. territory with 83% of the vote after spending two days campaigning on the island last week, rick santorum came in a distant second with 8%. 83-8, romney takes home all of puerto rico's 20 delegates. that brings his total haul to 463 delegates. more than 270 more than santorum. the romney campaign is hoping it will help attract more of the latino vote moving forward. this is important because the santorum -- the romney campaign, i should say, it's all about delegates and math. the illinois primary a day away. the latest polls show romney with a slight lead over santorum in illinois. santorum maintains he will be the republican nominee arguing that romney is too similar to the man republicans are trying to replace. >> the more i look at the record of governor romney and match it up against barack obama i feel like i'm doing a training run for the general election. t
